The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beauregard Ranch is all Cabernet Sauvignon that was brought up in 20% new barrels. Its medium ruby/purple color is followed by a beautiful bouquet of blackcurrants, vanilla bean, graphite, tobacco leaf, and bay leaf. It's medium to full-bodied, has a layered, seamless profile, good acidity, and a classic, balanced, age-worthy style. This will be loved by old-school Cabernet lovers and is a beautiful wine that's going to keep for 2-3 decades.
Vivacious aromas of blackberry, peppercorn, cigar box and green olive show on the nose of this bottling from a coastal vineyard that sits 1,700 feet above the ocean. The softly tannic palate is tart with red fruit and loaded with forest spices, showing anise, fennel, green sage, more green olive and chaparral scrub. (MK)
Winemaker's Notes: "The 2014 Beauregard Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon has a highly concentrated dark garnet red center. The 2014 Cabernet is showing expressions of a truly mature vineyard with a deep and rich profile. The aromas are ripe yet have an old world flare akin to a modern classified red wine from Bordeaux. The nose displays notes of ripe black currants, black plum, cassis, leather, red tobacco, cedar, wet rocks, toasted oak and delicate oak spices. The palate is full bodied and multi-layered with a beautiful harmony between ripe fruit, oak, and earth flavors which reflect the nose. This wine is still in its youth and based on my experience drinking older Beauregard Cabernets, please try to wait as long as you can to enjoy this wine. I highly advise waiting until the wine has 7-8 years of bottle age to really discover the true beauty these wines have the ability to show. The fruit will eventually integrate, the savory notes will emerge, and the wine will slowly change and show a personality similar to top Bordeaux with a touch more flesh and texture on the palate. Only time will allow this, so be patient. I anticipate the greatest years this wine will see will be 2020-2030 or beyond if kept perfectly. The Beauregard Ranch vineyard site was part of an original 160 acre vineyard and apple orchard planted in the early 1900’s. The vineyard was abandoned during prohibition and then resurrected in 1949 when retired Sherrif’s deputy Amos Beauregard purchased the property."
